    Dears,
    I just bought my Lumia 950 2 days ago
    I love it too much but have few inquiries "if you could guide me please":

    1) I succeeded to transfer contacts from old N70 to my Lumia
    when I receive a call mobile displays correct names
    HOWEVER
    I couldn't find any of my contacts list names to dial even when I search in People (I just find Skype contacts
    but didn't find any contacts of what I've transferred from old mobile?)

    2) I couldn't download any apps from Store (always Pending) !

    3) I found option to Disable Data but I prefer to disable 3G and keep 2G (2G voice + 2G Data: Edge)
    is it possible?

    Your support is highly appreciated

    2. In the People app, go to the ellipse ... Select settings then find "filter contact list" check to see if your imported contacts are in there and are ticked

    Hi Manmikey,

    I followed your instructions and found: Microsoft Messaging & Skype
    I ticked both of them
    Still couldn't find my imported contact list

    With point number 2, are you on WiFi when instore? If not, is your data turned of? Have you checked the data usage setting (under WiFi and network settings)?? If you are online with WiFi, try turning off and back on WiFi. Maybe reboot router, or check your download setting to see if large files etc are allocated to wifi.

    Hi Mad,
    I always use wifi with Data tuned off when I download
    However, I just updated my WP operating system and noticed important point that there 18 apps trying to update without
    informing me like MS office all applications (I stopped them all)
    then my store download work properly

    I assume you imported contacted from sim?
    If so the contacts are saved to your Microsoft account (according to Microsoft's help) , have you added your Microsoft account in the People settings?

    if it's crashing right away, I wonder if there's an update available, or at worst, reinstall app.

    I had the same problem when I first got my 950. My problem was I had to reset my password. I had to wait 1 whole month to reset my Microsoft account. I had my phone contacts on an older google account and added that to get my numbers back.

    Hi. I'll try to explain. When I signed into my Microsoft account, it asked me for a backup account I had several years ago which I had forgotten.
    I had to reset my password ( my Microsoft account) but I could not do it for 1 month.

    I had to manually enter in all my phone numbers from a PC. What a pain.

    I had an google account I added and many of my phone numbers came back.
